Sam Worthington's $20 Oscar Shoes Sold Out At Payless

"Avator" actor Sam Worthington made a subtle style statement on the Oscars red carpet, sporting a Brioni tux with Payless shoes. He told the AP his budget shoes were "comfortable, and the ones they gave me made me look like a goblin." Although Worthington didn't give specifics on the make or model, a Payless rep told Footwear News that Worthington wore the Dexter Pembroke:

Ideal for the office or that special event, this classic Dexter oxford features a burnished faux leather upper, a sleek round toe, genuine leather and breathable Drylex lining and a padded insole for comfort. Leather and manmade materials.

The shoe is already sold out in most sizes. Coincidence? Or new trend?
